Tis that very time of year
to say farewell to summer cheer
And welcome back our autumn days
A change of season here to stay
Amber shedding spaces Gray
Colors facing autumn day
Falling petals black and purple
Floating dancing against the myrtle
Cooling breeze upon my cheek
Stirring whirring soothing deep
Echo sounding through painted
Of tree tops glancing down on me
Brushing canvas with painted tip
Stroking, caressing, colours dip
Brown and green and faded red
Falling floating on natures bed
Sky's blue window starts to fade
Replacing light with opaque jade
Nightfall shrouds the broken sky
Of clouds that dance, up on high
Huddled round the sparking fire
Flaming shadows never tire
A silhouette dancing with glee
Scurrying fluttering trying to flee
An autumns day has reached the end
We celebrate in all it's glory
For every season tells a story

Bulb baby and fairy wings..............

Sylus and i have been going to playgroup at the school and love it!!! It's that special time to just be present with him and time alone so watching him play with other children........ really lovely families to share this journey with!! So just before the easter break he was given a little bulb wrapped up in wool and fabric to plant at home and watch it grow.

Scarlette received these wings made by a very clever mummy friend!! had to share these, this is one of the designs she has made and the others are just as stunning!!
